Father of the Super Hero

Hal Foster: Father of the Super Hero and Adventure Comics is on display through July 22. See the genius of this wonderful artist who started the whole tidal wave of adventure comics by drawing the first Tarzan strips during the 1930s.

Hal Foster also created Prince Valiant, an adventure comic familiar to many throughout the world but virtually unknown in the Chicago area. Skokie resident Sid Weiskirch created the exhibit, and he'll share his considerable expertise in two free talks at the Library.
